Yay... another awesome round in the making! I actually managed to get an early start this time round, but first some comments:
@ Evil Robot: I like it... always a fan of the more beastly Dracula. Very interested to see where you'll take this.
@ Dave Brasgalla: Great start... love the face and the bold red.
@ Confuzzled: Love the expression so far. I can see what you're saying about proportions, but I think it only needs minor tweaking.
@ Daruma: Very nice outfit & composition. I'd suggest making the perspective a little more extreme.
@ Disco Matt: Great colours and composition. Your format maybe a bit off, though... not portrait enough for a book cover imo.
@ Red Ninja: Don't be like that... I always enjoy looking at people's roughs.
@ kmasgrande: It's a good start, but I think it needs more creepiness for a gothic/horror novel.
Well, here's my first thumbnail, i.e. WIP1
